L7 ON TOUR THROUGHOUT THE U.S.

“Teri fronts the band and reveals her individual journey of emotional disquietude, but bi/MENTAL is very much a collective union of Le Butcherettes’s shared experiences.” – Noisey / VICE
“…Le Butcherettes most accessible/inaccessible release yet, being flecked with toothsome idiosyncrasies and aberrant quirks but also overflowing with anthemic melodies” – Record Collector
The Guadalajara-born and El Paso-LA based group, Le Butcherettes have announced additional shows and tour dates in the U.S. alongside iconic femme band, L7 and will play to a sold-out audience on May 2nd with Bikini Kill at the infamous, Hollywood Palladium after touring in Europe & U.K. in support of their latest release, bi/MENTAL released last month on Rise Records.
Le Butcherettes will also perform for the first time ever at Lucha Vavoom’s three-night celebration of their 10th Anniversary, ‘Cinco de Mayan’, taking place in downtown Los Angeles at The Mayan Theater on May 3, 4 and 5th. Lucha Vavoom is Los Angeles’ longest running, most celebrated action-packed variety show where electrifying masked wrestling, burlesque and comedy collide and will feature a huge helping of lucha libre-style wrestling straight from Mexico City, Tijuana, Guadalajara, and Juarez; high-octane Aztec dancers, folkloricos..

Following Le Butcherettes LA show dates the band will kick-off a U.S. tour with L7 on May 10th at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA, followed by 13 tour dates throughout the U.S. including; California, Texas, New York, D.C. etc. L7 is known for their signature sound of a heavy, catchy, mixture of punk, metal, noise and pop sounds that ushered them in the Grunge era and have an unforgettable raucous live performance. (full tour dates below).
Le Butcherettes will soon unveil a new single from their album, bi/MENTAl that features spoken word from the Dead Kennedys frontman, Jello Biafra on spider/WAVES. The schizophrenic barrage of “mother/HOLDS” [feat. Alice Bag] unites two generations of disruptive goddesses as Alice Bag and Teri formally meet on a recording. Chilean superstar and “ultra-girl crush” Mon Laferte lends her massive vocals to the Latin-tinged “la/SANDIA.” Everything concludes on the abrupt catharsis of “/BREATH.” It’s the ultimate emotional exorcism conjured by theatrical delivery, rock ‘n’ roll ambition, and punked-out psychedelic provocation.
The album was produced by iconic Talking Heads member Jerry Harrison (No Doubt, Violent Femmes, KD Lang) and recorded at his home studio in Northern California. Harrison brought a new creative environment and another dimension to the band’s sound and lyrics in the new album.
Le Butcherettes—Teri Gender Bender (vocals/guitar/piano), Alejandra Robles Luna (drums), Rikardo Rodríguez-López (guitars) and Marfred Rodríguez-López (bass).
